Trinity Inclusive Curriculum Project – Trinity-INC
Trinity’s student population is increasingly diverse, with growing numbers from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, ethnic minorities, international students from different cultural and learning backgrounds, students with disabilities, LGBTQ and mature students. Research documents that exclusionary practices prevalent in Universities damage student attainment and retention and negatively impact on student experience. Curriculum design can exclude certain students in relation to class (Quinn, 2006), gender (Quinn, 2006; Francis, 2006), sexuality (Toynton, 2007), ethnicity and disability (Fuller et al., 2008, 2009).
This new project will address diversity and ensure that the curriculum becomes an increasingly inclusive one. Students will be involved in the process of developing this curriculum, helping to co-create it.
